Sean Hannity Announces Sebastian Gorka Has Joined Fox News

Sean Hannity announced on his radio show today that Sebastian Gorka has officially joined Fox News. Gorka appeared on Hannity’s radio show today and, as first flagged by Media Matters, Hannity opened by saying, “I can officially announce today he is a Fox News national security strategist… Welcome to the Fox family.” Gorka praised Hannity as being a big part of this, calling him “a great supporter not only of myself, but of the administration and the President.” Mediaite can confirm this news is official. Such a move does not come as a surprise, given how frequently Gorka has appeared on Fox since he left the White House.

Seb Gorka Just Challenged Me to a Fight Over Email and I Accepted

It was last Tuesday night and I was doing what any 20 something struggling journalist would do — throwing back Natty Lights, aggressively betting on the Lakers game, and calling Donald Trump’s lackeys cowards on Twitter. The Trump World character I was particularly pissed off with at the time was Sebastian Gorka, who is best known for sounding like a super villain and (now) informally advising the White House by way of frequent Fox & Friends appearances. There are obvious reasons for disliking Gorka, but putting them aside, I was actually outraged by the fact he illegally parked his shitty four cylinder Mustang earlier that day. Look, if you sell your soul to the Trump administration, I’d imagine the least you can do is shell out the extra few grand for the V8 model, instead of that laughable, 2.3L EcoBoost thing Gorka drives — which he parked directly

Seb Gorka Spews Fake News While Blaming NYC Terror Attack on ‘Political Correctness’

Disgraced White House assistant Sebastian Gorka — who has taken an informal advising role in the administration by constantly appearing on Fox & Friends — peddled the debunked claim that political correctness allowed the San Bernardino terror attack to happen. Gorka touted the lie that the neighbors of the terrorists were suspicious about their activities while appearing on Fox News this morning. “No more political correctness. Political correctness can kill people. We know in San Bernardino, that the neighbors of the killers, saw suspicious activity but refused to report it because they were afraid of being called racist or islamophobes,” said the fired Trump lackey. While alleged sexual harasser Steve Doocy may have agreed with Gorka and not questioned him, this claim — as with many Fox & Friends-isms — was not factually accurate. The real neighbors of the San Bernardino killers actually described the two as “quiet, Continue reading "Seb Gorka Spews Fake News While Blaming NYC Terror Attack on ‘Political Correctness’"

Jake Tapper: Trump Admin Trying to ‘Muddy the Waters’ on Russia Probe with Clinton Talk

CNN’s Jake Tapper opened The Lead on Friday by observing that it seems like the Trump White House is trying to “muddy the waters” in regards to the ongoing Russia investigations. In response to President Trump‘s tweet today saying it’s “commonly agreed… that there was NO collusion between Russia and Trump” but there “was collusion with HC [Hillary Clinton],” Tapper said, “That, of course, is not commonly agreed.” He also noted how the ongoing investigation isn’t just about Trump, but about people around him. But the White House, Tapper said, “has made it very clear they want all of you to look elsewhere.” Tapper said it’s pretty clear the White House would rather talk about anything Clinton-related than the Mueller investigation. He knocked “the more extreme voices on the President’s favorite channel” who have been talking about this, singling out Sebastian Gorka in particular. Last Continue reading "Jake Tapper: Trump Admin Trying to ‘Muddy the Waters’ on Russia Probe with Clinton Talk"

Twitter Rips Gorka’s ‘Black African’ Crime Comment: ‘White Nationalism on Display’

Former White House adviser Sebastian Gorka is drawing quite a bit of attentions over his recent remarks about “black African crime.” Gorka appeared on a Sinclair town hall on guns, and he called for expanded police action in order to deal with “black African gun crime against black Africans.” He made this point by pointing to Chicago and other Democrat-run cities where black people are killing each other “by the bushel.” The panel prompted Gorka to clarify that he was referring to “African Americans,” though he’s still turning a few heads for how he originally described “black Africans” with respect to an epidemic of violence. As such, plenty of blue-checked Twitter users, Continue reading "Twitter Rips Gorka’s ‘Black African’ Crime Comment: ‘White Nationalism on Display’"

Seb Gorka Gets Literary: North Korea ‘Is a Lilliputian Flea’

On Monday, President Donald Trump made a vague but blunt statement on North Korea, following the country’s latest missile test. “We’ll handle North Korea,” Trump said. “We’ll be able to handle it.” On Tuesday, Trump’s deputy assistant, Sebastian Gorka, offered similarly vague but even tougher talk on North Korea. Appearing on Varney & Co., Gorka — whose heated cable news spots have garnered much attention (and reportedly earned him praise from the Commander-in-Chief) — this time turned his fire not on the media, but on a regime which is quickly evolving into a major test for the Trump administration. And Trump, Gorka says, will not blink. “This is blatant blackmail,” Gorka said. “Blackmail of the western community. We don’t give into blackmail. This president is not to give into blackmail. Still, Gorka downplayed the threat, saying that North Korea is just not equipped for a war against Continue reading "Seb Gorka Gets Literary: North Korea ‘Is a Lilliputian Flea’"
